MRS. GEORGE E, DOVEY
AND DAUGHTER MISS
EDITH RETURN HOME
Mrs. George E. Dovey and daugh
ter, Miss Edith, who have just re
turned home from a visit of several
months in New York, after a visit
with Mrs. Fred Truesdell and Miss
Alice Dovey, report Mrs. Truesdell as
l.einir much imnroved in health. It
- --j-i i
was feared at first that Mrs. True
dell would not recover from her ill
ness, but soon after the arrival of
Mrs. Dovey in New York it was de
cided to send her to Connecticut,
where she has spent the past few
months at the farm home of Mr. and
Mrs. Homer Mason, with whom she
was associated in "The Stubborn Cin-
drella." and with the fresh air and
farm life she is showing much im-
j rovement, and this has jxreatiy on
eouiajred her family in believing that
she will soon be restored to health.
Mrs. Dovey remained at the Truesdell
lii. me at llijrh Bridge durinjr her stay
in the east and cared for the children
while her daughter was in Connecti
cut, and reports that the two little
t'au.chters are in the best of health.
Mis Alice Dovey, who is scoring one
of her greatest successes in "Very
Good Eddie."' is playing at the Prin
cess theater, where the play has been
tunning for the past season, and the
continued success points to almost
another year at this place for the
talented young star ami her delight
ful musical comedy. Miss Alice
Dovey, in addition to carrying her
t?llar role in the musical comedy, is
also co-star of William Courtney in
moving pictures, and finds her time
almost wholly occupied as the morn
ings and afternoon are taken up with
the movies at the studios at Hoboken
and Miss Dovey is then hurried back
to New York for the evening per
formance cf '-'Very Good Eddie." She
has proven one of the most successful
stars of the season and is very popu
lar among the playgoers in the
world's greatest city. The illness of
Mrs. Truesdell prevented Mrs. Dovey
from visitng as many points of in
terest as she had hoped to on h;-r
trip and she was forced to return to
be present at the gradaution of her
son, Charles, as well as her own ill
ness, which would not permit her
remaining in the east longer. It is
hoped by the family that Miss Alice
will be able to secure a two weeks'
vacation in July and be able to spend
a few days at home with her family
in this city. While in New York Miss
Edith studied with Mr. Frank Starr,
formerly Miss Lillian Terry, who was
greatly charmed with her beautiful
PROBRIETORS OF THE
PEOPLES' STORE FINED
FOR VIOLATING FOOD LAW
This afternoon the proprietors of
the Peoples' Giocery and Meat market
on South Sixth street were fined $10
and costs, amounting to $15, for viola
tion of the mire food laws of the State

county attorney and W. S. Frisby,
deputy of the state food commission
er's ojTice. It seems that the gentle
men had purchased a cow for butch
ering and after the butchering had
taken the unborn calf from the cow
and offered it for sale in the meat
market of their store. The matter at
tracting the attention of the author
ities, an investigation followed and
with the result that the two young
men operating the store were brought
onto the carpet and received their fine
to discourage other violations of the
aw that protects the food stuffs of
the people of Nebraska.

him making good time for Union and

uiid It of White Pine
Whether you're going to build a home, barn.
Ngp garage, or henhouse, White Pine will give you
longest service and greatest satisfaction.
No wood equals White Pine for all exposed sur
faces. Three centuries of building experience in
America prove this. It does not warp, sag, twist
or split after years of exposure even in closest
mortises and in delicate mouldings. (
Its popularity has never waned since the Pilgrims used it,
but many people who know the desirable qualities of
. believe it is difficult to obtain. Such is not the case, as
the ample stocks in our yards bear witness. And its
longer service makes it most economical, even at a blightly
higher first cost.
Get our prices on this king of all structural woods and
if you don't already know it3 advantages let us tell you
more about them.
1 1 costs no more to buy your lumber at home often less
freight considered, and you can see what you get before
you pay for it. Then, too. we are "on the ground" to
serve you - always as near as your phone.
